Mayfly is Katie Trautz and Julia Wayne. You may remember Katie appearing as part of Wooden Dinosaur a few years back. We tried to get Mayfly to Nelson during the month of May so you’d know how on top of things we are, but it wasn’t to be. Join us on Friday, October 11 at 8:00 PM in the Nelson Town Hall for a concert of traditional and original music. Admission is $12/$9(Sr/Jr).
Mayfly, Americana/Old-time duo, is a Vermont based band that performs old-time New England and Appalachian music, as well as original songwriting on guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo and vocals. Mayfly has been performing for over 10 years, touring throughout the USA and Canada. The girls have two albums, one of which won ‘Best Traditional Album of the Year’ in Vermont. Mayfly intersperses close harmony vocals with strong instrumentals influenced by blues, ballads, and American roots music. The duo has performed alongside renowned traditional musicians from across the globe, including Swedish fiddler Anna Lindblad, Louisiana based musician Dirk Powell, and North Carolina’s Riley Baugus. Mayfly has also shared the stage with Crooked Still, Avi and Celia, David Boulanger, Sheesham and Lotus, Crowfoot, Pete Sutherland and other great bands and musicians at festivals in New England and Canada. Mayfly will be celebrating the release of a third album in the summer of 2013.
